Some VEC Customers Receiving Scam Email

Several VEC Customers have reported receiving an email that claims to be from Volunteer Energy Cooperative saying “Your latest Energy bill is now available to view online.”

It instructs customers to “log-in to your account or register for an online account to view your statement. The email also contains a link to an outside site where scammers are attempting to collect credit card and bank account information.

The sender is listed as “Energy Billing Service.”

These emails are not from Volunteer Energy Cooperative. Please do not provide any sensitive information to these scammers. VEC does send emails when bills are available to view online but VEC’s emails do not contain a link to VEC’s online bill payment service.
